Europa - International Year of Astronomy

San Marino Postal Service has issued two new stamps with postage values of 0.60 and 0.65 Euro named "Europa - International Year of Astronomy" on the 8th of May 2009. Each of the stamps represent the planets in our solar system. The 0.65 Euro stamp represents the solar system with all the planets in orbit around our sun according to the heliocentric system hypothesized by Galileo Galilei. The 0.60 Euro stamp celebrates a historical route which has always seen man occupied in the understanding of the motion of the planets found in the universe around us. It also depicts satellites and our most rudimentary of telescopes used by the Galileo Galilei to our most sophisticated telescopes.

"Europa - International Year of Astronomy" stamps can be purchased as a set of 2, or Sheets of 12. The size of each stamp is 30mm x 40mm with a perforation of 14 x 13 1/4 using the 2cm reference. They will be printed by Joh. Enschede Stamps BV using the offset printing process. A total of 100,008 sets will be printed.
